Best DIY Home Solar Panels

Installing your own solar panels can save you approximately 35% of the typical solar panel cost.

Designing your own Solar Power Project

Typically, the designing and installation of solar (PV) projects on a home is done by professionals. However, you may be the type of person that wants to do it yourself. If you are one of those people, I cannot recommend this book enough: "Solar Electricity Handbook: 2016 Edition" by Michael Boxwell. This book covers it all, and it covers things that I have not seen talked about on the many YouTube videos I've watched on this matter.

Do yourself a favor, and buy (or at least consider) this book if you plan on doing this project yourself.

You won't regret it.

Disclaimer: To be clear here, we are not advocating you install your own solar panels unless you REALLY know what you are doing.
